    But honest - as long as you approach pontoon / others at slow speed - then not much can go wrong !! Says he with smile on his face !!!!! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    I hope that because I am a small boat I am put next to a big posh one because then when they see me coming they will be all hands on deck with fenders out [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    I always put loads of large fenders out when you come alongside - no plans to change that now........... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Thats a brilliant plan GC1 [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Im only going to only park up next to brand new boats from now on (as long as they're fully crewed up of course) It'll save me a fortune on fenders in the long run.

    Just out of interest do they do "L" plates or flag for boats , just so people realise from a distance that there may be some "issues" to follow when you are aiming at the tiny bit of pontoon between them

    Default Well - I shall be coming in \"one-up\"

    First Crew - fell of ladder and injured shoulder.
    Second Crew changed job and has to work.
    Third Crew also changed job ....
    SWMBO has sick horse and won't leave him.
    Fourth Crew - wife has booked him and her to a hotel for friends wedding ...
    Brothers booked to go to Greek Islands for hols.

    So I'm not doing too well on crewing stakes ... Therefore I ask that if anyone is around Hayles Pontoons thursday / friday for the meet .... please fend me of from bashing the pontoon !!!!!
